Former Senate president Juan Ponce Enrile said he supports the legalization of medical marijuana.
The House of Representatives has passed on third and final reading a bill legalizing the use of medical marijuana in the Philippines.
Enrile said medical marijuana production should be regulated by the government.
“Let it be a function of business, but regulated and controlled by the government,” he said.
“Let the farmers of the country benefit out of it,” Enrile added.
